shows president obama would win at least 271 electoral votes. 270 votes wins the presidency. the romney campaign, no doubt, is struggling to, say the least. romney's own running mate was forced to admit how their campaign has stumbled. >> so, yeah, we have had some missteps, but at the end of the day, the choice is really clear. we're giving people a clear choice. >> paul ryan was asked about the tax cuts for the millionaires proposed by romney and ryan's budget plans. he was a guest on fox news sunday with chris wallace and the vice presidential candidate made some missteps of his own. >> how much would it cost? >> it's revenue neutral. >> i'm just talking about -- the cut in tax rates. >> the cut in tax rates is lowered for all americans by 20%. it's revenue neutral. >> it's not unless you take away the deductions. we're going to get to that. the first half. lowering the tax rates. does that cost $5 trillion? >> no. >> the master of the power point was having a hard time making a point. let's break down what paul ryan is actually saying here. romney and ryan will give $5 trillion in t
will control the senate and that he can block president obama's agenda. >> given his votes dork you believe his goal is to block and obstruct president obama's agenda? >> on economic issues, i absolutely do. >> do people in massachusetts, felix, believe that the senator is bipartisan? and has a bipartisan record and a bipartisan image? >> i don't. i would have appreciated a more bipartisan record when he voted against three job bills and supported the blunt amendment when he's not been standing up for pro-choice causes, when he doesn't support the buffett rule to make sure someone like me in the working class paying 30% in taxes is paying the same as someone like mitt romney, who he endorsed for president and doesn't want to mention who is paying less than 14%. had a constituent in boston tell me that brown is pro-choice. if by choice you mean allowing the employer whether to decide whether or not women should have access to contraception. that shows he's not bipartisan when he stands with nasty legislation like that. >> i tell you what, 18% of the people in a "boston globe" poll say they are u
at this moment, president obama can count on 243 electoral votes, just 27 shy of the 270 needed to win. romney meanwhile can bank on 191, that leaves 104 votes up for grabs in just eight states, florida, nevada, colorado, wisconsin, ohio, virginia, north carolina, and new hampshire. to win romney would need to win a majority of those battlegrounds and according to recent opinion polls in those states the president is leading or statistically tied with romney, one reason why nate silver's trustee ma mathematical models are predicting november 6th could be a good night for team op puts the president's chances of winning at 86% and mitt romney's a meager 14%. insert romney frowny face here. it is really this buttoned up? i want to go deep into the nate silver mind chamber on this block. it is -- i mean that's a pretty big gap there, 86 to 14. let's speak electorally here. >> sure. >> you're pegging obama with 320.1 electoral votes, up nearly 11 in the last couple weeks or last week, romney at 217.9. 320 is a lot of electoral votes. that would be i think a mandate. >> so -- well i don't know if i
was in reach of a second term. obama within reach of the 270 electoral votes. mitt romney's pass victory is narrowing. the associated press reported yesterday. again, just numbers right eric? just numbers. it is a snapshot. they admit of where we are right now. >> i haven't seen it specifically -- i saw something on twitter a headline that even rasmussen has obama up three. so now they've got -- >> stephanie: the fox news poll. as well. >> they're in on the conspiracy. >> the "wall street journal" poll. you have to have rupert purr dock's -- murdoch's fox, rupert murdoch, rasmussen in on the conspiracy. it is a wildfire! >> stephanie: we're like wow. so mitt romney is running a really good campaign? [ scooby-doo's "huh?" ] >> so now fox news's strategy is to diminish the people who vote for president obama. calling them stupid. stupidest people on earth. >> stephanie: let's hear some of that. let's dive into the right-wing world. sean hannity reaching back for his reagan binky. >> you and i know this,
they were going to have the attitude we just want to vote the incumbent out. they looked at president obama in 2012 and they said we've got the same thing this year. we need to be a generic protest vehicle. we need to be as inoffensive and nonspecific as possible to swing voters. that strategy is good for 45, 46, 47% of the vote. it has not gotten them higher all year. there's no reason to think that that strategy alone is going to left them over the top. now you've got republicans that are starting to pan he can e romney has choices, he can start saying something more affirmative but if he wants to appeal to swing veeters, he's going to irritate his base. or he's going to alienate the swing voters. i think they're just finding out now it's not getting them quite where they thought it would. >> let's listen to the advise bill o'reilly has for mitt romney about how to handle the tax details question. >> i would say listen, with all due respect, scott, i can't tell you right now. because it's not fully formulated what i can do in that area. i don't want to hurt the housing industry, i don't w
silver fraufts that on november 6th president obama will within 309 votes. today paul ryan picked off the romney campaign's three day pus tour through ohio, where a new pole of ohio likely voters shows president obama leading by 5 points. no republican has won the presidency without winning ohio. mitt romney will join the ohio bus tour tomorrow. he and paul ryan will be then followed by the democratic national committee's own ohio bus tour which will stop in the same cities. the dnc's bus tour is called mitt romney writing off the middle class tour. joining me now from the dnc bus tour in columbus ohio, former ohio governor, ted strik land. and from new york, krystal ball. >> fewer americans are working today than when president obama took office. it doesn't have to be this way. if obama would stand up to china. obama had years to stand up to china. we can't afford four more. >> governor, your reaction to that romney ad? >> well, i mean, it's a joke. everyone knows that president obama has done more than any previous president to make sure that our trade laws are fairly enforced. and
for barack obama and twice as many as the number that will vote for mitt romney. that means most people do not feel represented by either of these candidates or parties that have such a track record of serving the 1%. the wealthy few whose fortunes have skyrocketed while everyday americans are being thrown under the bus by the day. . . reduce us our debt, it does not increase t. that we can downsize the military, bring our troops and more dollars home, that we can bail out the students, instead of bailing out the banks. the fed just announced it's undertaken another quantitative easing. this is the third quantitative easing. this is trillions of dollars that they are pouring into wall street, simply to bail them out, when the banks continue to get too big to fail and bigger all the time, and too big to jail. the public does not like this. they want jobs. they want public higher education which is affordable. they want health care as a human right, they won't to downsize the military and bring the troops home. so the system is designed to lock us out and to make us run through all kinds of

and voting than it has been -- >> i do want to take a look at your latest article which is titled, if obama wins, what changes for a second term? what are your conclusions? >> there will be wholesale change, all of the cabinet will be gone, much of the white house staff and so the president will have an opportunity really for a fresh start. there's discussions maybe erskin bowls might will treasury secretary. it will produce howls on the left, afraid the president is going to give away the store. but depending on the size of the victory, if it happens, if he just squeaks through, he's going to have to do a lot more dealings with republicans as he would like and is he going to be able to do more of the personal stroking that a lot of people thinks he needs to do as a president wooing members of congress. tom daschle former -- if republicans want to deal, they'll find a willing voice in the white house, but this is a president that wants to deal with a small group of familiar faces whether he's playing golf or he's making policy. it's going to challenge him with a lot of his pals gone. and it

many people come out successfully manage to cast a vote support mitt romney and support barack obama. jest an enormous amount of energy is turning out people who have decided they prefer one or the other but might not make their way to the polls. >> 36 days until the election. i did want to show these numbers from your piece. 43% of are watching very closely. that's for the decided. for the undecided and the people who may or may not go to the polls, who aren't those people who every election make their way to the polling place, do we have a good take on what get them there? is it an issue? is it a phone call? what motivates them in the end? >> so there is evidence on one of the most effective way to move people to the polls. to some degree it's human contact. having somebody knock on your door. particularly talking to a friend, somebody you may know. that really matters. if you can be convinced to sign some kind of a pledge in advance or say to somebody you're going to cast a vote, that really matters. trying to get people to take pledges saying one way or the other i do pledge i wi

from the obama campaign restored all early voting for all citizens. >>> finally you have heard republicans hurl words like socialist at president obama, right? a texas congressman went someplace else entirely. the world as it existed prior to the first world war. >> this is the beginnings, a massive beginning of a new ottoman empire that president obama can take great credit for. yeah, we're in big trouble here in america, but, wow, look what he has helped do in the middle east. a new ottoman empire. thank you president barack hussein obama. i'm not one of those who says he's not a christian. i know he's helped jump start a new ottoman empire. >> the only thing he knows about ottomans is where he puts his feet when he's falling asleep watching fox. >>> up next, conservatives want to unleash paul ryan and let ryan be ryan. we say bring it on. let's look at the real paul ryan right here on "hardball." you're watching it. the place for politics. >>> i'm milissa. >>> welcome back to "hardball." conservatives swoon for congressman paul ryan when he was chosen for the republican tick
the last word. how does mitt romney peel away voters who right now that say they're going to vote for obama? >> he has to get them back focused on obama's policies, the failures of obama's policies and offer them what he would do and why that would be better for their families, their communities and our country. pretty simple. it's not rocket science. >> we'll be watching wednesday night. thank you for a terrific roundtables. for those at home, governor barbour and dean will answer your questions on twitter. >>> and now -- three moments from this week in history. what year was it? >> so help me god. >> so help me god. >> a new swing vote on the supreme court. >> judge and now justice kennedy. sounds good, doesn't it? >>> it appears that pan-american flight 103 was bombed. terrorism. >> 270 killed over lockerbie, scotland. >>> and -- the opening night for broadway's longest running show. >> it's far more than an old-fashioned broadway musical. it's very thetheoratical. >> was it 1986, 1987 or 1988? we'll be right back with the answer. >>> so what year was it? and every day since, we've worke
voting. i am struck by this. obama voters seem to know they're supposed to vote early. look at the numbers in nevada and north carolina. nevada, people say they plan to vote early, 53, 43. north carolina, vote early, obama, 57-41. >> that's the organizational difference and also we saw it four years ago with obama versus mccain. obama did better among early voters. in a sense, you saw this ad that obama has taken out in battleground states which is almost a closing ad where he talks directly to the camera with new message of economic patriotism, and that's what you do at the end. it is the end or start of election month as opposed to election day. the obama people seem to have a better organizational handle on this than romney. >> the other thing we saw, a movement over time was the right direction, wrong trend. >> that's what's lifting an incumbent president. saw it especially in new hampshire where he opened a significant lead over mitt romney. >> what was the right track, wrong track? >> closed negative 20 points now to negative 7 points. still more people see it as not g
. according to "the washington post"/abc news poll, 49% say they would vote for obama and 47% for romney. those numbers are unmoved from early last month. >> so nationally we're in the margin of error in this poll. >> all right. in the critical swing states, the president's lead grows to 11 points among likely voters. 52% to 41%. in ohio, a state where early in-person voting begins tomorrow -- >> wow! >> -- a new "columbus dispatch" poll shows the president leading 51%-42%. in august that same poll had the two candidates tied at 45%. >> at 45%. if you want to know how badly things have gone over the past month for mitt romney, how bad september was for mitt romney, just look at the "the columbus dispatch" poll. he's lost nine points in ohio. it's absolutely critical that he does change the narrative, he does turn things around. you know, we always talk about -- i've always talked about 1980, the final weekend, it's tied between reagan and carter. this isn't 1980 anymore. he's got to kick start it now because let's say he wins the final two weeks. he still loses the election. you can't ju
they are certain to vote for romney and 42 percent certain vote for obama and 15 percent haven't decided . >> gretchen: that's huge. that is a dead heat report to look at the certainty of these people they are voting early right and these people who know in the debates who they will vote for. these debates are for the undecided it is a huge chunk of the population. other than voters turn out of the base. that will turn the election>> eric: that is 10-20 percent of the undisguisable and persuadable. throw that poll up one more second. in the bottom of that. likely voters. those are the polls that are most accurate and go after the likely voters . not just people who poll random people. >> steve: you and i talked about george washington university. they do a battle ground poll . barak 49 percent x. romney 47. and now he leads by 4 in the independents which is a better number for the former governor of massachusetts. >> gretchen: meanwhile congressman paul ryan was on the talk shows and he had this to say about polls and the state of the race. >> the question given all of that, why are you
. michael goodwin, who voted for president obama, he loves it when we remind people of that, here to explain coming up. >> eric: but first, let's check in with none other than martha mccallum for what's up at the top of the hour. >> good morning. along that same line, there are calls for susan rice to resign in the wake of the benghazi debauchle and the mom of a form navy seal who was killed that night speaks out about the dragging of heels in that investigation. we know that there is more information coming out. we report on that. you will decide. that debate is coming up. bill and i will see you at the top of the hour you can't leave the table till you finish your vegetables.

was voting genz president obama no matter who is on the ballot. the compete for the rest of us. >> let me ask you about president obama. "the washington post" gave the president for pinocchios on the claim it was bush's fault. is romney missing opportunity to go after obama on his record and misstatements, stories i hear out of politico for one is he focused more on mistruths in the debates and the campaign. is that a good strategy? >> it's really one of the few arrows he has left. no question about it. he won't win in election by attacking president obama. he has to give the american people a clear and cojent plan why he's better and a better bet to take. it's always a risk when you turn away from an incumbent president. americans have shown their willingness to do so. the carter election and the first george bush election when bill clinton got elected, but they have to have a reason. they have to have a reason. >> isn't obama's record a good reason? should not mitt romney be talking more about that record? >> he should, but he also has to couple that with why he would be different. what wou
abandoning this horse race and saying barack obama is very close to the electoral votes. we want the to know what you think. mark you're up extremely early. you're on the bill press show. >> i'm an overnight security guard. >> right i've done it before, worked lots of overtime. welcome. >> i wanted to say real quick your commenting on the thing in fox news in california. >> and phoenix news. >> it's not really that unusual. there was a gentleman that i can't remember his name, but he called a press conference i believe in ohio. >> in the 1980's. >> bud dwyer. >> and he shot himself at the press conference. i would comment on that, that if it bleeds, it leads. >> in fairness, you don't cover a press conference because you think someone is going to commit violence on themselves. it's a bit of a different scenario. >> fair enough. >> a lot of networks refused to air the footage but some charmers put it up on you tube. >> quick on the comment on the debates themselves. >> great. >> i am an obama supporter i'm going to vote, but i really don't see that anything spectacular is going to happen out
. if the president's cracking 47% of the white vote, that's a formula for an obama victory. and where are the key big battleground states? there are several in the midwest. ohio, iowa, wisconsin. look at the race in the midwest. obama, 52%, romney, 43%. the president is winning that part of the country. out west in denver, colorado, nevada, among the battlegrounds out here in the west. ten-point lead in the west for the president. 54% to 44%. the white vote and if you look regionally, there are things that give the president's team some optimism. >> if you're the romney campaign looking at these new poll numbers, what should give the romney folks some optimism? >> reporter: one of the reasons we are back in a closer race, a statistical dead heat nationally f you go state by state, it's a little different, this number, governor romney has improved his standing among independents. he leads by eight points among those who describe themselves as independent voters. that's a significant improvement for governor romney, 49% to 41%, among independents. and again the defining question, when you have an incum
-- >> if they could just vote. >> obama campaign should counter it -- i don't know if you've seen that photograph going around of the baby that is screaming as mitt romney is holding it trying to get back to the mother, google baby romney it's amazing. i don't know that it works with women because, again, when women look at romney's policies, the thing that drives them the most crazy about it is, shouldn't it be my choice to have access to birth control so i can economically plan for a family and be a responsible mom. this is really -- counter intuitive to getting women, i think. >> it's sort of strategically manages to avoid the question of legitimate rape, forced rape, paul ryan's positions on those matters and the choice on the economic situation of women in america. women have not recovered as quickly in terms of job gains due to large part that manufacturing and construction have come back first, not typically women heavy jobs. i guess the question is we've talked about why now, the romney campaign has sort of trotting out whether it's old videotape or stories or anecdotes meant to humanize
by the end of the month? >> do you know that mccain beat obama on election day, and obama got it in early voting. >> things can change overnight with a great debate performance, but again, mark hallprin, time is running out. >> he's still behind in too many places to win. he doesn't have as of today an obvious electoral college path, and he's not going to make it up on the ground with enthusiasm anymore. >> let's bring it kristen welker at the white house for you. by the end of the mow, 30 states are casting early absentee ballots, that includes five battleground states. is the president's team confident they can keep governor romney from closing the gaps as we see in the polls as of today? >> good morning, alex. i think the obama team is confident but they're cautious. they're six weeks until election day. that's a lifetime when it comes to politics. folks have already started to turn out for early voting. we have a graphic of what we've seen so far. it shows that obama campaign supporters are actually leading right now in terms of voter turnout as compared to romney supporters. i've spo
obama has so many more paths to 270 electoral votes than mitt romney does. as you mentioned mitt romney pretty much has to run the table among all the battleground states to be able to hit 270 electoral votes. that's according to our nbc battleground map as well as others including the ap just showed there. that is a challenge for mitt romney. i'll add something else, our nbc/"wall street journal" mar rist poll sur vaied nine battlegrounds and president obama was ahead in all states from two points to seven points. that shows the hurdles that mitt romney has, even though the race is close. >> we talked about early voting and we know as i mentioned ohio and several other states have to correct the math if i'm wrong here, hard to keep up at this point, i think it's around 30, so many states with early voting at this point. this is before the big debate and millions of eyes will be on the debate, whether in its long form or clicking on to clips that will hit the internet within minutes of it coming out of the candidate's mouth? >> that early voting is why this debate is probably more impor
a different path. >>> president obama meantime tries to seize the moment as early voting begins around the country, offering a closing argument. >> when i took office, we were losing nearly 800,000 jobs a month and were mired in a rut. today i believe that as a nation we are moving forward again. >> this morning, the state of the race. a debate preview, and a look at the issues that will sway undecided voters. with us, republican governor of new jersey, the keynoter at the gop convention, chris christie. and for the obama campaign, the architect of his 2008 run, now white house senior adviser david plouffe. finally, insights and analysis from our political roundtable. joining us, conservative activist and founder of the faith and freedom coalition ralph reed. former democratic governor of pennsylvania ed rendell. anchor of bbc's "world news america" katty kay. and our chief white house correspondent and political director chuck todd. >>> good sunday morning. with both sides in full preparation mode for wednesday's first presidential debate, the struggling romney campaign is recalibrati
, the right wing, is coming out to vote against president obama. he should have at that point started to drive his campaign towards the independents, towards suburban voters in philadelphia and cleveland and places like that. and he didn't do it. he has not been. for those of us who served reagan as governors, we're shocked he's been such a poor candidate because he was a good governor. he was a good governor. he did some very impressive things. and he's made every mistake in the book. you can't just subscribe to the fact that president obama has been a good candidate. he's a good candidate with a very tough economy. >> but to some extent those were problems that were hard for him to overcome. one of the ways to humanize himself was to talk about his religion. that was very difficult during the course of the campaign with the conservative evangelical base suspicious of mormonism. the other thing is talk about his record of governor. one of his main things was health care reform in massachusetts. that also was very hard for him to do. >> he's talking about it now. he should have talked about it
